CHARLIE RICH - THAT'S MY WAY


Charlie Rich had a chameleon like career during his first decade, and luckily was given the opportunity to explore rockabilly, country, pop and, yes, some down home, dancefloor fillin' white soul as heard here.

With a voice practically as strong as Elvis, Charlie Rich could and DID sing anything. As soon as the amazing drum break kicks off this song, it's pure sonic bliss for the next 2:33. Rich himself has said that his recordings for Smash records are his personal favorites, and when one considers song such as this, "Mohair Sam" (a pretty big hit), and "Dance Of Love" (a past 45 of the day) it's quite easy to see why.

from 1966...

It's like a melding of Presley and Sammy Davis.
